In order to comply with the provisions in Section 101 of the Local Government Act 1972 with respect to delegation of functions to officers, it is not essential for the scheme of delegation actually to identify the officers.  Lewis J in R (Pemberton International Ltd) v Lambeth LBC [2014] EWHC 1998 (Admin) holds, at paragraph 53, that it suffices that the scheme “sets out the process by which the officers authorised to exercise certain functions can be identified”.  This may be “a certain group of officers”.
